Part of a series of paintings that Monet created of his wife, Camille Monet, and their son Jean who was eight years old at the time of the painting.
It depicts Monets specialty in painting the outdoors and of the Impressionism movement in art which mainly focuses on capturing what the eyes perceive of the different colors of the object when varying degrees of sunlight hit them.
This series of paintings also shows his mastery in depicting light and movement of air, through gentle, fluid strokes in vibrant colors, thereby creating a very realistic scene.
The landscape being featured in the paintings is actually the garden that surrounds the painters familys second home located in Argenteuil in the suburbs of Paris
